    I was told by my ob that I can get the harmony test if I want, however he said that cause of my age there is like a 1 in 500 chance and he left it up to me, for €450 I’m toying if I should or not? I was told I’m really low risk, so I think I’ll take my chances but I’ve a nagging feeling I should? Can I get it after my 20 weeks scan? I got a scan at 14weeks due to needing anti D and everything looked great and normal then.
    So confused

    It's totally up to you really. I think you can get it at at any stage of your pregnancy. You get a scan at it too. Plus you can find out the sex through the blood test if that was something you wanted to do.

    Yes. Had mine in April. No issues at all and had results back in a week.

    It's supposed to be done before a certain number of weeks AFAIK.
